The Knight Center for Environmental Journalism has limited paid staff positions for graduate and undergraduate students at Michigan State University. The work includes
- producing news stories for Great Lakes Echo, our award winning online regional environmental news service;
- assisting faculty with research, including online and library research and proofreading of conference papers, journal articles and other material;
- interviewing scientists about their environment-related research for podcasts and other public distribution;
- helping “translate” research for lay audiences.
Other needs depend on the flow of projects, grants and Knight Center activities. Hours are flexible.
Experience is helpful but not required. Undergraduate student employees should take at least one 400-level environmental journalism course during the academic year: JRN 472 (environmental reporting), JRN 473 (environmental journalism seminar) or one of our special topics courses.
Send a resume, two references with contact information, writing samples and/or links to published work to Knight Center Administrative Assistant Barb Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will interview limited candidates at the start of the fall semester.
